Risk warning

The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and an investor may get back less than the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future results.

How to invest responsibly

It’s easier than ever to invest in a way that has the potential to make a difference and provide a financial return. Sustainability considerations are integrated into our investment process, through taking account of ESG factors and are integral to everything we do.

Our sustainable solutions build on ESG integration to provide a range of investment capabilities designed to meet clients’ financial goals and objectives whilst allowing them to invest in a way that aligns with their values and sustainability views.

Invest today. Change tomorrow.

Sustainability is a growing concern for investors – that’s why we believe that understanding the full range of environmental, social and governance risks and opportunities is key to generating strong and sustainable returns whilst having a positive impact on the environment, society and the wider world.

Active ownership is a core part of sustainable investing.

Thematic funds

Values

Values investors want their portfolios to accurately reflect their personal ethics or sustainability values. They are often keen to avoid and/or select certain industries or companies based on their beliefs. With our ‘values’ solutions, we invest according to the ethical or sustainability issues that investors care about – for instance, climate change and environmental protection. Values-focused funds will include or avoid companies and industries based on those values.

Sustainable funds

Sustainable

Sustainable investors want their investments to reflect the risks to people and the planet more clearly than traditional investments. They want to support better business practices, and they expect links to certain industries and behaviors to be reduced or removed. Our sustainable funds invest in companies with sustainable businesses and that show superior management of ESG factors. With our sustainable funds, we avoid industries like coal or oil & gas that are deemed unsustainable.
